- Remember to have space and fixtures for holding your toothbrush within easy reach, maybe planning a built-in liquid soup holder, although those may be proven tricky to clean. Towel holders, at least for the hand towels, should be within your grab when you are washing your hands at the sink.
- For your bath towels, consider a heating towel drier, which come in variety of colours and shapes. If you live in a colder climate, this can be great for keeping your towels dry and warm.
- An essential fixture if the shower niche or shelf. It’s surprising that not many modern houses include a built-in shower niche for shampoos, conditioners, and soaps, and we have to install shelves later. If you have the ability to built a niche on the stage of bathroom design, it would be a great relieve. If not, think about adorning your bathroom with a shelf that is not easily breakable.

Gone are the times when a single light was hanging from the ceiling. Modern light fittings help us to feel at home and provide comfort day and night.
For example, the usability feature offering motion sensors and dim lights for your bathroom may prevent you from falling down or hitting your head when walking around at night, and not wanting to switch on bright lights. The motion sensors activate floor or wall mounted spotlights, which are sufficient to see at night and easy on your eyes. The lights can be white or coloured, for instance, blue LED lights are very popular today.
Cabinets could be also decorated by cable LED lighting on the bottom. Strategically placed down lights will provide sufficient illumination with low voltage and energy spending.
Beautifying your restroom is not only about fittings and fixtures. It is common to find vases with flowers and potpourri, wall paintings, and mirrored makeup tables in these spaces today.
The simplest way to change the way your bathrooms looks and feels is by changing the colour of your towels and bath mat. You can instantly add a bright spot or add tranquillity to the space by choosing neutral colours.
Remember to install a powerful ceiling fan in your bathroom, otherwise you beautiful decor and paint on the walls may not last long. Some people elect to connect the fan switch with the light switch on the shower.
